 أَخْبَرَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ قَالَ: حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ سُفْيَانَ، عَنْ سِمَاكٍ، عَنْ سُوَيْدِ بْنِ قَيْسٍ قَالَ: جَلَبْت أَنَا وَمَخْرَفَةُ الْعَبْدِيُّ بَزًّا مِنْ هَجَرَ، فَأَتَانَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَنَحْنُ بِمِنًى، وَوَزَّانٌ يَزِنُ بِالْأَجْرِ، فَاشْتَرَى مِنَّا سَرَاوِيلَ، فَقَالَ لِلْوَزَّانِ: «زِنْ وَأَرْجِحْ»

سنن نسائي

*Reported in Nassai by Suweid ibn Qais r.a. that the beloved prophet Swalallahou ‘Alaihi Wasallam came to buy trousers by them. When weighting to pay the price, the beloved prophet Swalallahou ‘Alaihi Wasallam told the person to *weight properly and make it slightly more.(Nassai)*

*So sunnah to give a little more when dealing.*

*One may get the du’a of jannah of the prophet Swalallahou ‘Alaihi Wasallam by dealing with softness and kindness in our business dealings:*

قَالَ عُثْمَانُ بْنُ عَفَّانَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: «أَدْخَلَ اللَّهُ الْجَنَّةَ رَجُلًا كَانَ سَهْلًا بَائِعًا وَمُشْتَرِيًا»

ابن  ماجة

*”_May Allah Ta’ala give Jannah to that person who is kind in his selling and buying._”(Ibn Majah)*

*Reported in Bukhari that the beloved prophet Swalallahou ‘Alaihi Wasallam said:* *”_May Allah Ta’ala bless that person who act with kindness during his selling and buying dealings and also when asking for payment(from his debtors)_.”(Bukhari)*

عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُمَا: أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، قَالَ: «رَحِمَ اللَّهُ رَجُلًا سَمْحًا إِذَا بَاعَ، وَإِذَا اشْتَرَى، وَإِذَا اقْتَضَى


*Nowadays, products are sold industrially prepackaged. But It is possible for the seller to act with kindness by discounts. As such sunnah for the seller to forgive the cents on the bill. One may set the cashier system to round up bill and forgiving the surplus cents. One would get the duas of the prophet and blessings from Allah Ta’ala*. 

*On the other hand, when paying directly to the owner, one may pay a little more, an expression of kindness.* 

*Islam teaches kindness in dealings. Such kindness that have opened hearts of people of continents like China, Malaysia and Indonesia.*

*So when stepping out for your dealings today, keep in mind these sunnah protocols. You would be exposing the beauty of sunnah that would be sufficient to erase all islamophobia in your country insha Allah.*
